Mostly Mozart Festival: Festival Orchestra in All-Mozart Program at David Geffen Hall

David H. Koch Theatre, Lincoln Center

http://www.lincolncenter.org/mostly-mozart-festival/show/prague-symphony

10 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023

“Enlightening and provoking” (Herald Scotland), Christian Zacharias illuminates how the city of Prague and Mozart’s Czech contemporaries influenced the composer’s musical life. From both the podium and the piano, Zacharias leads the orchestra through two noble works that Mozart completed within a day of each other—Symphony No. 38, premiered in Prague in 1787, and Piano Concerto No. 25 in C major. “Radiant” soprano Rosa Feola (New York Times) debut performs two virtuosic concert arias inspired by the storied Czech soprano (and Mozart’s close friend) Josepha Dušek. — Lincoln Center

“It’s hard to imagine finer soprano singing.” – Guardian (U.K.) on Rosa Feola

“Zacharias extracted the depth and the grandeur, the power and the originality, from every detail.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker
